develop our activities.
Our mission is to create equal chances for all children and youth
regardless their personal circumstances. We transform their passion
into the way to make their own living.Our aim is to enable local youth
to discover their own potential and use it to increase the quality of
their lives.
Methods we use are: volunteering, new media, movement and sport.
We are very open to experiment with new methods; you are very

CONTEXT/ BACKGROUND

GREEN
PULSE
OF
NGRD

Szcsny is a small town in the Northern part of Hungary.


The town is situated in Ngrd county which is one of the
poorest region of the country. Here the unemployment is high, and
the youth has very limited opportunities to stay and work here.
Hence, young people from the region tend to move abroad or to bigger
cities in Hungary to start a new life.
Szcsny is a historical town. In the center, you can find historical
sites such as a castle, a tower and a bastion. In the town, you can find
necessary institutions such as banks, schools, health center and
pharmacy. As well as there are restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, a
library, a community center. The youngsters have no active social
life in the town, they have very limited opportunities to spend their
time with their friends or to go out.Since in the nearby villages there
are no schools or only up until 4th grade, most of the children come to
Szcsny on a daily basis to school. In the town there are three
schools which provide classes from 1st grade until graduation, and
beyond. Several artistic group works in the town. There are theater
groups, a hip hop group and folklore groups as well.

What to expect in Szcsny:


countryside life
quiet and peaceful atmosphere
closure of nature
traditions and cultural events
lot of youngsters all around the
town

What NOT to expect in Szcsny:


big citylife
fast phase of life
traffic jams
active night life
